Sandy Hook, NJ - Sea Glass Report
Sea glass collected in 20 minutes from just one of the beaches! (Beach K)
Sandy Hook, New Jersey
We visited Sandy Hook, NJ as a daytrip from eastern PA.
It was a comfortable drive without any major city hassles.
Once you go over the bridge, there are several beaches to choose from on both ocean and harbor sides.
There is a fort at the end of the island with a lighthouse, as well. Wonderful beach.
We combed the beach nearer to the end of the island, just before the Fort. I believe it was Beach K.
We only hunted for 20 minutes due to being rained out and I came away with some beautiful pieces.
There were a couple thick light sea-foam green pieces and even one orange piece!
There are lots of clam shells littering the beach and pieces of debris, so you have to look thoroughly, but if you keep your focus, you will definitely come away with some treasures.
A word of advice, there is alot of newely broken glass that litters the beach, so shoes are a must or you might get a nasty cut.
I just picked these pieces up and threw them into the surf to be tumbled and hopefully collected later.

OdysseySeaGlass appreciates this and all reports we receive. However, when evaluating a report, use good judgment.
*Note: Amanda rated this beach but I was confused as to two different ratings in her submission
The included photo does not show any jewelry-grade sea glass, so officially, from the photo, the rating would be "Poor."
However, as Amanda states, there is likely a lot of craft-grade sea glass for your sea glass projects.
As always, we remind folks that sea glass beach reports are not confirmed by Lin or me at Odyssey Sea Glass unless otherwise stated.
Reports that do not include photos of the sea glass found are less reliable. So use your own judgement in deciding whether to travel to this particular beach or not.
